If I were DeMeco Ryans, I'd now save CJ and Will Jr. until next fall.  I'm not sure about risking more injury to our draftees by playing them more this season, especially now that this playoffs is practically out of the Texans reach....a 9-8 record (my projected finish) simply won't be good enough to snag a Wild Card spot especially teams like Denver and Buffalo on a tear lately and Cincinnati unaffected by Joe Burrow's injury.  We already lost Dell and possibly Nico Collins, among several other players.

The mods ought to modify that stupid line of "s"s below the OP's avatar. In some threads, those characters protrude into the post and mess up the display. Example:

Done. No user has a right to include content in their profile that disrupts normal operation of the forum for other users.

I live around here and I've read stuff saying that they should use the York Street alignment, which would be interesting to say the least, but it would nuke the businesses on Maine Street thriving off of inflow from the current bridge. On another note, I wish they would keep some of the bridge if they tear it down, even though this is my nostalgia spiel. They have some metal on 2nd and Maine that I think is from a railroad bridge, so I feel somewhat confident saying they'll do the same to this bridge with how long its been here. But yeah, the bridge has been underwater quite a few times during floods, clogging our other bridge, and the nasty rehabilitation during 2021 left Bayview really congested. Next time I'm on the bridge, I might wanna get a video of it before it's gone for good. Gonna be sad, since the ba-dump, ba-dump was funny, and my dad speeding, going 95 on it when I was little, but it's all nostalgia for me, and we could really use a wider, higher, and less steep bridge. Just not sure where they're gonna go with the location of the bridge. About the design, as long as they make it blue I won't care.  :D

Among the polls listed, I predict US-290 from Houston to Austin.

I would like to add a project worth considering.  Instead of I-69W from Victoria to Laredo, I'd like to see an interstate highway from Corpus Christi to Laredo running along or parallel to TX-44 from Corpus Christi to Freer and then US-59 from there to Laredo.  Already at IH-standards from Corpus Christi to approaching Robstown (including bypassing around Clarkwood), it's still mostly a four-lane divided highway from there to San Diego (TX).  Bypasses around Robstown, Agua Dulce, Alice/San Diego, and Freer would be needed, and would need an overpass or two through Banquete.  This highway has been talked about since the late 1990's among locals along the way.  Getting around Robstown and Alice would be a great time-saver.  Driving through Alice can sometimes take over a quarter-hour on TX-44 for only a five-mile stretch.
Isn’t/wasn’t that part of the I-69 system with potentially the speculated interstate designation I-6?

I would have called it I-4 because it hovers similar latitudes as I-4 across the Florida peninsula.  But I don't remember it being apart of the I-69 corridor.

It's 2023, and Plex still does not handle Audiobooks. While my go-to application for audiobooks is Audible (followed by GraphicAudio), in the past, I have picked up some audiobooks from Humble Bundle which consists of a series of MP3 files. From a playback perspective, they are just audio files. However, because of the length of the tracks (some can be over an hour long), you really want to pause in the middle of a track and pick up at the same point. There is a whole series of feature requests. I've ended up installing a Emby instance on my server for the Audiobook support, but alas, because I did not purchase a license (yet), all I can do is stream my books.

I'm also challenged because a 18TB External Hard drive which I had ordered on special on November 18, 2023 for backup purposes with the original delivery date of December 2nd is now expected December 22nd - 28th.

On the NJ Tpk. thread it was theorized that the toll gates on the nb off ramp and sb on ramp at GSP exit 4 (NJ 47) were designed to soak the motorists headed between the Cape May-Lewes Ferry and the Wildwoods.  Did the tolls at exit 4 exist prior to 1964?  The CMLF didn't begin service until the summer of 1964, almost a decade after the Parkway opened.

Near Grand Rapids, MI, this turn for WBD M-21 traffic to access the newly-opened EBD I-96 ramp qualifies. The on-ramp to I-96 opened earlier this fall.

The EBD M-21 to WBD I-96 movement has been around a while longer: https://maps.app.goo.gl/RSHemAWNnuzyyf9a8

They would look a lot better without the stupid bottom plaque. They were a dumb pet project of the previous governor's adminstration. The current governor's administration should have just removed them rather than swapping those out for the governor's name.

That's been part of the sign since at least the early 70's.

I won't argue with you on that then, but I guess those plaques weren't on the Hudson welcome sign I would see most frequently as I have no memory of those plaques until the previous administration with its kitschy political slogan.

It has mainly been used to stroke the ego of whoever is the current governor.


No, it's mainly used as a Governor's welcome to visitors. I'm pretty sure that this is low on the list of "ego boosters".
"Open For Business" is an ego boost - one that failed for the implementor of that.

What they really need instead is this:

Next Kwik Trip: 1 MI
Next Culvers: 1 MI
Next Piggly Wiggly 3 mi

First Location to Purchase New Glarus: 1 mi
